The Large Huntsman is an enemy in Bloodborne. While it's apparent that it is hardly human, the scourge hasn't taken this creature completely, and therefore it does not have the same weaknesses you would expect from fully-fledged scourge victim.

This enemy moves quite slowly and it is prone to counters with guns of any types. Visceral attacks are quite effective against them, so it is worth investing some time to learn their move-sets. Alternatively, stealth attacks also work well since these enemies are often standing still.

Be wary of their combos, as their follow ups can easily kill a low-level or mid-level player. Their torch swings can stun-lock players to devastating effect, while it will follow up usually with an overhead attack which will finish off the player. Not to be trifled with.

Strategy


  • Parrying is effective as they move slowly.
  • Counters are effective, particularly since they have a long recovery time.
  • In some areas, these enemies will hide behind barrels or walls in order to ambush the player.


Large Huntsman Information


These enemies have three variations, wielding plow, spear and saw. The saw version also waves a torch which results in fire damage. Observe the weapon dependent move-set and counter appropriately.
